Picking a Winner

Posted by Michelle on Sunday, October 17, 2010
Do you pick your nose? No? Don't lie, I know you do. Tell me you do it when no one's looking... Tell me you don't look like you're digging for treasure. Nose pickers everywhere bother me, it's so gross. Even more gross is  when someone examines what they found in there.

I was out with a friend at one of my favourite casual dining restaurants waiting for my order an we know I'm a starer, so I found myself looking at different people when this one lady caught my eye. She was glancing around with this weird look like she was nervous and she was running her finger along her face... And then... She stuck that finger in her nose.

Me: Omg.
Friend: What?
Me: That lady is picking her nose!
Friend: Are you gonna watch? 
Me: She's really getting in there.
I really wish I looked away. I wanted to, but something else wanted to see where this was going. Although, looking back, where else could it have gone?
Friend: You're a weird person do you know that?
Me: Holy shit! She's still at it!
Friend: I hope she finds what she is looking for.
[nose picker looks up]
In that moment I didn't know what to do but look away as quick as I could, but I have Starers Disease. @_@ 
I glanced back and by this time she was no longer looking at me and she put the finger back in again! When she took out that finger she stared at it for a while, then she wiped it on the table. Mid-wipe she looks around and catches me staring and I had to force myself not to look away. That is hands down the most awkward situation involving a nose picker that I have ever been in. I looked away for a bit and when I looked back she was still looking at me! And from then it was this weird little don't-catch-me-looking-at-you game.

Don't pick your nose in public. Don't examine it. Don't wipe it on a table. And above all!!! Don't make me feel weird about it!
